Syren Dance Company is bringing their renowned dance workshops to Connecticut! On 1/31/2015, SYREN will be presenting a dance workshop from 10am to 2:45pm at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, 15 Vernon Street, Hartford, CT. One of the founders of SYREN dance company is Kate St. Amand, a graduate of Torrington’s Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory. In 2003, St. Amand and Lynn forged SYREN and they have been performing across the country ever since. Nutmeg Chatter had the opportunity to profile Kate St. Amand in 2014.
This year, SYREN dance company is starting out strong as they bring their vision of dance to new audiences nationwide. SYREN will be performing in Washington DC in February 6th and then on March 21st, they will be featured performers at RADfest in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Their most recent critically acclaimed dance based on Bach’s work, “The Art of Fugue”, was performed at Vespers at Holy Trinity in New York City and talks are underway to bring this piece to a Connecticut audience.
But always a hallmark of the SYREN company has always been their mission to teach their style of dance. In addition to the Hartford workshop on 1/31, SYREN’s Lynn Peterson is already scheduled to teach at the Gibney Dance Center in NYC on March 2, 4, 9, 11, 2015.
St. Amand states, “The workshops are geared toward current dance students, mainly high school and above however, younger students who are advanced in their training in modern or contemporary dance are most welcome.”
